    Default Need ideas for the wife!

    Hello ladies, I need your help.
    My wife is new to frags, really, and I would like to expand her collection. Thank you @PerfumedLady for the suggestion.
    Currently she owns, in her favorite order:
    TH truestar
    TR True Religion for Women
    Davidoff Cool Water Woman
    She made me give away Burberry Brit Summer Edition Women, although she was pregnant at the time and I think I am going to have her sample that one again. She generally likes summery scents, but I am trying to get some cool weather ideas as well. I will order samples based on suggestion.
    Thanks!!!

    P.S. samples currently on the way:
    Guerlain Shalimar
    Chanel No. 5
    GA AdG4 for Women
    TF Black Orchid
    Bvlgari Bvlgari
    Dior Poison
    Creed Love in White/ and Black

    Aww, you're more than welcome, nosebud!

    I love that you are having her sample No.5 and Shalimar! Two of my faves. If it turns out she likes No.5, she absolutely must try Tauer's Miriam from the Tableau de Parfums series. Think she should also sample his Zeta, very summery. If No.5 feels a bit stuffy to her, see No.5 Eau Premiere, which is more citrusy and relaxed. If she likes Shalimar, have her try Bulgari Black and Miller Harris' Fleur Oriental.

    Cool Water makes me think she may like the Hermes Jardin line, especially Apres la Mousson and Sur le Nil. She may also like Kelly Caleche from their regular line. All of these are often available on Amazon at a discount. And the Chanel Cristalle line may appeal to her summery tastes.

    If she really doesn't get on well with heavier scents, no worries! I wear my lighter, greener scents year round. In fact, they make a beautiful and striking contrast with cooler air. Keep us posted as she works through this new round of samples; her opinions will trigger even more suggestions!

    Edit:
    Thought of another Tauer- Vetiver Dance. Very pretty and floral but with enough depth for any season. I'm sure I'm going to have suggestions popping into my head all day now!

    I would add something green, like Chanel Cristalle or Chanel no 19.

    Love in white is very controversial, to say the least.

    If she likes citrus fragrances I think you should try Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte or Bvlgari Omnia Coral.

    Okay, so after a trip to the mall we have a little more input.
    She liked Brit Shear, but it did not last on her skin and she liked Marc Jacobs Dot better anyway.
    She likes Ralph by RL.
    I so wanted her to like Chanel Chance eau tendre but she didn't (I think it would be good on me.)
    J'Adore by Dior she thought was nice, but not for her.
    She did like Eternity Aqua
    She hated Obsession, Eternity, and Opium.
    Also hated Taylor Swift Candy.

    Due to input from you fine women I am looking into either testing or getting samples of the following:
    Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte
    Bvlgari Omnia Coral
    L'Instant de Guerlain
    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil-Hermes

    Again thank you for your suggestions! I will be going through all suggestions eventually and will keep you posted on her reactions.

    She likes citrus, musks, aquatics, melon, pineapple. Fresh but with musk added.

    Just out of curiosity..does she like Aventus on you or have you tried it? She may like it.
